becky movie review - Aussieboyreviews


The level of suspense in Becky is exciting and reasonably engaging, but the film is savagely violent. Many may find the film boring, but there are still pretty decent thrills and scenes of shocking content, lead by an excellent antagonist.


Teenaged Becky tries to reconnect with her father during a weekend getaway at a lakefront house. But the trip soon takes a turn for the worse when a group of convicts on the run suddenly invade the house.

Aussie boy's thoughts

Becky is the tremendously suspenseful, savagely violent and shockingly jaw-dropping result of Rambo meeting Home Alone. The real challenge is getting fans of the thriller genre to quit judging the film by its ratings and just avoiding it, because it’s seriously one of the most thrilling and menacing films you could ever see. Plus, why is Becky getting such low ratings and terrible reviews?

Is the bloody gore too much for audiences? In fact, if you’re a thriller fan who enjoys and can handle explicit violence, loves the severely rare type of suspense, and can’t get enough of defence-against-dangerous-home-invader movies: how in the world haven’t you already seen Becky? Lulu Wilson’s character is a hell of a badass teenager who fights against a group of escaped convicts who are lead by an extremely fierce, menacing and savage main villain played by Kevin James. You will never be able to see James in the same way after his brutal and outstanding performance in this grisly thriller.

It’s usually an entertaining mess of carnage and the teenage protagonist’s skills are wild, but there are elements that’ll leave many viewers dissatisfied. What was the purpose of the key? Where’s all the emotions of certain characters dying? Another thing that will please some but not others is the how realistic a teenager beating some savages. Honestly, that was a pretty ferocious and awesome idea.
